Best Answer

This question is missing the excerpt. I've found the complete question online:

Read the excerpt from Hemingway's "A Farewell to Arms."

We parked the cars beyond the brickyard. The ovens and some deep holes had been equipped as dressing stations. There were three doctors that I knew. I talked with the major and learned that when it should start and our cars should be loaded we would drive them back along the screened road and up to the main road along the ridge where there would be a post and other cars to clear them.

A. straightforward and simple, while still relating a lot of information to the reader  

B. long-winded and offering far too much information to the reader  

C. overly complicated, making it difficult to interpret and understand the text  

D. effortless and uncomplicated, with little meaning for the reader to interpret

Answer:

The best way to describe Hemingway's style is:

A. Straightforward and simple, while still relating a lot of information to the reader.

Explanation:

By reading the passage, we can see most sentences are short and direct. Hemingway's purpose seems to be offering as much information as possible while, at the same time, using few words. At the beginning, for instance, he says, "There were three doctors that I knew." With this short sentence, we get to know there were doctors in the station, and that three of them were known by the speaker. Even toward the end of the excerpt, where we have a longer sentence, the style remain unaltered. It is still fluid and straightforward. The punctuation is kept to a minimum.
